      Canadian-American duo Dan Frechette and Laurel Thomsen are “...prodigious players with songwriting that sets them apart" (Penguin's Eggs). Dan and Laurel seamlessly combine emotive, soaring violin, diverse guitar styles, a dash of harmonica and humor, and unique vocal chemistry with a polished, engaging performance, showcased both in their stage performance and on their three albums.

      Dan Frechette is an eclectic and exceptionally prolific multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter inspired by jazz, blues, and folk music from the 30's to the 70's, with a voice that holds a similar timbre to Don Henley, and a refreshing and memorable songwriting style in the spirit of Neil Young, Gordon Lightfoot, Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, Louis Armstrong and Paul Simon. Dan's signature guitar playing style is a beaming nod to the masters of the guitar: Pete Townshend, Norman Blake and Doc Watson.

      Laurel Thomsen, California genre-bending violinist, composer, published author, and respected educator, has performed classically and with a variety of bands and artists since 1998. With a rich and expressive violin tone and an interpretive style that can both rock a solo or add backup texture and groove, Laurel is frequently sought for her ability to add depth and emotion to diverse styles of music in the studio or on stage.

      Driven to create, play, and perform, Dan Frechette and Laurel Thomsen are quickly finding their niche on the North American and European folk circuits. However, hard work and dedication is only one facet of Dan and Laurel; as those who meet and hear them soon discover, “there is something incredibly romantic about these two and the way that their love story is told through their music” (Brandie Michelle, Medicine Hat Zine). Whether at home in Northern California, or creating their home on the road at various tour stops across the globe, it’s clear to people who observe these two that their harmony extends well beyond their music.
      With broad influences ranging from Folk, Classical, Old Time and Celtic, to Gospel, Jazz, Vintage Country, Rock N' Roll, Blues, and Bluegrass, Dan and Laurel flow seamlessly through genres, tempos, stories, and moods, embodying each style with virtuosic command and keeping music fans on the edge of their seats.
